Asbestosis is a non-cancerous asbestos disease which develops 20-30 years after significant exposure. It is a chronic respiratory disease that is marked by fibrosis (scarring) and stiffness of the lung, usually detected by medical professionals upon medical imaging (x-ray or CT scan). It may lead to severe shortness of breath and could become life-threatening. Asbestosis cases are compensable through civil lawsuits, bankruptcy claims, and Missouri Workers’ Compensation claims.
When other asbestos law firms refuse to pursue cases for these asbestos diseases, O’Brien Law Firm will…and has successfully for many years.
